Cubs young slugger Kyle Schwarber joined in a surprise birthday party on Sunday night for 10-year old Campbell Faulkner who is fighting a rare mitochondrial disease.

Schwarber with the help of HopesKids Arizona drove him and his family around in a Batmobile for over an hour.

"He's just a good kid," Schwarber said via Cubs.com. "He's got a really good heart and that's all you can say about the kid. He's a person you look up to because he's faced a lot of adversity in his life and he's only 10 years old. He's faced it with a big smile on his face. It was definitely something I could relate to, going through my little injury. He's someone you look up to every day."

Schwarber and Campbell have been penpals since Schwarber met him at Spring Training in 2015.
